Local Food Hero Takes a Break!

Hi Local Food Hero Fans,

We will be taking the next couple months off to work on the schedule for 2009. We hope you enjoyed the last year and hope to hear from you over the next few weeks on what you would like to see in the next season. Soon we will begin webcasting the food memories we gathered over the summer here on Local Food Hero.

In the mean time, go to the archive section and “re-heat” some of the shows you may have missed the first go-round!

Thanks,

Brett and Lindsay
